ABOUT THE lesson

Lesson operator’s description: We will pick our students up at their hotel and take them to Manuel Antonio’s beach, where we will teach this lesson. We begin with a warm-up including some stretches (as surfing is very physical). Then, before entering the water, the instructor provides a detailed safety talk for approximately 15 minutes where he/she will explain basic surf, safety instruction and then demonstrate the main surf positions and correct posture. This includes in-depth practice of surf motion on the beach in order to ensure that the student is ready to enter the water. They are then equipped with a surfboard according to their level of experience, rash guards,as-well as a professional and highly trained instructor. Then we will enter the sea to start catching waves. The instructor will guide each student throughout the session by providing guidance depending on each individual level. This could include selecting and pushing the student in to waves, telling them when to stand up and perfecting technique. There are a few breaks throughout the lesson during which we offer fresh fruits and drinks. During this break each instructor will provide their student with individualized feedback where they will use once they return to the water to practice their newly acquired skills. When the lesson is over we return everyone to their place of accommodation.
